MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse Final Thoughts

Overall, the Corsair Scimitar Pro is a fantastic gaming mouse. With it’s plethora of lighting customization and adjustable thumb buttons, not to mention its impressive 17 programmable buttons. It is a corded mouse, which if you ask some of my gaming buddies, is a big negative. But, for me, a corded mouse is preferred.


Corsair Scimitar Pro Gaming Mouse Conclusion

In terms of performance, the Corsair Scimitar Pro performed at my expectations. It is, after all, a Corsair product, and one would be hard pressed to find a Corsair product that didn’t please. Would you use this for your regular, every day mouse? Well, maybe. Would you use this for your gaming mouse? Most definitely. The pixart sensor is very accurate while forgiving for the occasional mouse lift (yes I’m one of those). It’s loud RGB lighting wouldn’t be appropriate at the job setting, but would fit in perfectly in your fortress of solitude.

Appearance wise, it basically looks exactly like the Corsair Scimitar. This look, while a bit intimidating for the uninitiated, is very favorable with MOBA/MMO players as well as some FPS players. It has an ergonomic curve that can only be utilized by right handed people, but with it’s abundance of lighting around the mouse and the ability to customize the colors and patterns to your heart’s content, it’ll make you stand out for sure at your local LAN party.

The mouse seems solidly constructed, I hadn’t tried to destroy it, yet. In all seriousness, it does seem like it could handle being carried around in a book-bag as you go back and forth to gaming parties. The cord has a thick braid on a sturdy cord. The USB connector also has stress relieve and seems to be of a higher quality as well.

The Corsair Scimitar Pro functions perfectly as a gaming mouse for MOBA/MMO players. As an FPS player’s mouse, well that will come down to preference. I personally like the customization of the buttons and the ability to have them perform whatever task I deem necessary while in game. Some other FPS players, however, would deem the buttons overkill and prefer a lower profile mouse to achieve a good “Claw” style grip.

As of January 2017, the Corsair Scimitar Pro sells online for $79.99 (Amazon | Newegg). For under $100, its a steal. With it’s unique and adjustable side buttons, RGB lighting, and the Pixart 16,000 dpi sensor, this mouse is an excellent choice for gamers who want great features for a fair price.

I would recommend this mouse to any gamer who prefers RGB equipment and possibly already has a Corsair keyboard, as this would combine the software for both in to one program. MOBA/MMO gamers specifically should like this mouse, and with the adjustable slider, comfort for those gaming sessions shouldn’t be an issue. While it was an issue for me, I’m confident that if I used the mouse for a few more weeks my wrist would become accustomed and the pain I experienced would be a non issue.
